Girl newsies, 1909, Hartford, Connecticut. Taken by Lewis Hine (click for further details of each).
Girl newsies were less common, but, as these photographs show, they did exist. Hine traveled around America, taking pictures of child workers in an attempt to reform child labor laws. In this time period, some kids were forced into work early to help support their family, while others worked after school for pocket-money. He didn’t note which category these girls fell under, but their clothing seems to suggest it would have been the latter [x].
